Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mangosteen at 99 Ranch Market
« on: July 13, 2018, 04:49:32 PM »
Shopped at my local 99 Ranch Market today and spotted fresh bagged mangosteens from Mexico

I'm keeping the seeds for planting, mainly as a curiosity project

I have healthy, organic Chaya cuttings for trade.
It's a hardy perennial which goes dormant during the Winter.

« on: April 20, 2018, 05:54:26 AM »

I have a few PKM2 Moringa seedlings available.

PKM2 is a cultivated variety which flowers early, producing pods.  It also has more lateral branching, making harvesting less difficult

Local pick up.  Shipping can be considered.  Seeds available, too

Easy to root, with high success percentage.
Fast growing tree collards are evergreen & perennial.
Leaves have a purple tinge during cold weather, but turn green during the warmer months.

I'm looking to get into growing microgreens, starting with sunflower seeds (black oil & regular) & broccoli seeds, in 10X20 trays with soil.  What are your favorite sprouts/microgreens to eat?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Green Sapote recommendation?

Of the online nurseries I've searched, Fairchild, Whitman & IFAS green sapotes are available for purchase.  Can anyone share details on which to get?  Thanks.

I have 1 gal & 3 gal
Easy to grow, prefers full sun
Can eat raw, hence the name "earth apple", or cooked
Can also be rendered to make yacon syrup.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / California Keitt at Aldi
« on: November 10, 2017, 04:55:57 PM »
Picked up some organic California Keitts at Aldi for 39 cents.    I plan to sprout a few seeds

American Beauty is a good-sized fruit, no pollination needed (still unsure about self-fertile vs. self-pollinating).  I had to pick this one a little early due to ants burrowing into it.  I usually wait till all the scale tips dry up.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Arizona Purple dragonfruit
« on: July 22, 2017, 07:13:41 PM »
Arizona Purple has small fruits, but as you can see, they have a rich, dark color & more flavor than white varieties.  Plus, Arizona Purple makes an abundant amount of flowers/fruits

No pollination/pollinator necessary

I have 5 gal Dwarf Namwah & Dwarf Jamaican Red Banana Pups

A few trees I'm interested in-
black sapote
peanut butter fruit



Popular in Latin America, Chaya is a high protein leafy green.
Very nutritious, it is drought tolerant & low maintenance.
Leaves must be boiled for 3-5 minutes before eating, as they contain hydrocyanic glycosides.
Fish & animals love eating it, too!
Goes dormant during Winter, but grows vigorously in warm weather.
1 gallon

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Blue Java banana experiences
« on: June 08, 2017, 12:00:28 PM »
I currently have a Dwarf Namwah & Dwarf Jamaican Red.  I love the Dwarf Namwah - the thick trunk making staking unnecessary, the fruit production, the flavor etc.  Dwarf Jamaican Red, however, grows slow as molasses.  It's having faster growth this year than previous years, but I've been anticipating trying the fruit for some time.

I wanted to know about Blue Java, and if it's another banana variety I should grow, here in SoCal

I have Sunshine Blue & Jewel.  Local trade only, no shipping.

5 gal Dwarf Jamaican Red banana tree, organically grown.

Trade local pickup only.  Sale adds the cost of shipping.

Trade interests include black sapote
